Restaurant's and hotels cheating

Hi, I was wondering if anyone else noticed that Italian restaurants and hotels add things to each bill that you didn't order or receive. It happened to us 3/4 of the time...too often to be mere mistakes.

I have travelled quite a bit in Italy, and have never encountered this. Anywhere.

It happened to me... in San Francisco (California).

I would have to agree with sydneynick - I'm afraid I too have never seen extra items on bills anywhere in the world. I've certainly been in plenty of restaurants where things I've ordered haven't arrived, but that's been sorted out before the bill arrives.

It's never happened to me either. Can you explain what was added and where?

Coperto or bread, may be confusing you.
